North American PS4 owners will be able to play the expansion at 1PM ET on Tuesday. In Europe, the DLC will release at Midnight (local time) on all platforms.

Fallout 4 DLC

The Fallout 4 expansion is scheduled for a release on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on March 22th, and promises to be a Mecha galore. Check out the trailer for yourself.

In Automatron, the mysterious Mechanist has unleashed a horde of evil robots into the Commonwealth, including the devious Robobrain. Hunt them down and harvest their parts to build and mod your own custom robot companions. Choose from hundreds of mods; mixing limbs, armor, abilities, and weapons such as the all-new lightning chain gun. Even customize their paint schemes and choose their voices! (For characters level 15 or higher.)


Automatron marks the first add-on release for Fallout 4. In April, we’re expanding the capabilities of settlements with Wasteland Workshop, and in May, travel beyond the Commonwealth to Maine for Far Harbor – the largest landmass Bethesda Game Studios has ever created for post-release content. And, that’s just the beginning, with even more add-ons to be released in 2016. Stay tuned for more details on free updates like Survival Mode and the Creation Kit, which will allow you to create mods on the PC and then share and play them across all platforms, including consoles.

Fallout 4

Bethesda detailed the expansions for Fallout 4 last month. While the first expansion focuses on the mysterious ‘Mechanist’, the second expansion will focus on the ‘Wasteland Workshop’. The ‘Wasteland’ expansion is scheduled for a release next month.

With the Wasteland Workshop, design and set cages to capture live creatures – from raiders to Deathclaws! Tame them or have them face off in battle, even against your fellow settlers. The Wasteland Workshop also includes a suite of new design options for your settlements like nixi tube lighting, letter kits, taxidermy and more!

The third DLC pack, Far Harbor, will be released in May. This expansion promises to be the biggest of the three packs revealed, with players having to travel to Far Harbor to bring peace to the land, a land made more feral by higher lever of radiation.
